2. Japanese Ramen

Ramen holds a special place in the Japanese heart. Instant noodles are a popular meal and companies are always improving the quality and variety of noodles.


ZenPop Ramen Pack includes 9 big bowls of instant noodles. It features favorites like Tonkotsu, Shio, Shoyu, and Miso Ramen, but you’ll also find varieties of Udon, Soba, and Yakisoba to try.

3. Japanese Ramen & Sweets!
